The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) said the aircraft, according to the captain, noticed that the ‘Left Hand Nose Tyre Pressure Indicator was on,’ which is an indication of faulty ‘Nose Wheels.’
“Observing the Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) which is a corollary to safe operation, the pilot declared an emergency,” NCAA spokesman Mr Fan Ndubuoke said in a statement.
Ndubuoke said the aircraft, which had 168 passengers and 10 crew on board, landed safely at the Lagos airport.
The captain of the flight later explained to the NCAA that the ‘Nose Tyre Pressure Indicator’ was faulty hence the wrong signal. But it was later discovered to be in good condition.
